What is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists are dental specialists trained in the restoration and replacement of teeth and related structures. They are commonly referred to as the architects of dentistry.

Prosthodontics, also known as prosthetic dentistry, is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). It is the specialty responsible for the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of patients with complex clinical conditions using biocompatible substitutes, including implants, to replace missing or deficient teeth and/or craniofacial tissues. After general dental school, extensive training for three years with clinical experience, research and testing in an accredited ADA graduate program provide prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of tooth replacements.

Dr. Pickle is trained in state-of-the-art techniques for treating many diverse and complex dental conditions, and he can offer expert solutions for restoring function and esthetics to your smile. He provides all phases of dental restorations and prostheses beginning with comprehensive advanced diagnosis and treatment planning. Dr. Pickle is committed to thorough communication and fully understanding your needs. If you feel that you may need prosthodontic treatment, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can’t wait to deliver you with results you’ll love through comfortable, expert solutions.

Who Needs a Prosthodontist?
Any person with complex, extensive or unusual dental or oral restorative needs should see a prosthodontist for consultation before proceeding with treatment. Many patients are middle-age adults or older with years of accumulated dentistry and wear and tear on their teeth. Some patients are very young or very old with special needs related to specific conditions. Anyone with missing teeth, whether it is one tooth or many teeth, should consider seeing a prosthodontist first to discuss options to replace their missing teeth.
